Hello everyone~
I’m chani ! If I choose delicious rice or 30 minutes of sleep, I’ll choose the latter! Is there someone who can sympathize with this (╹◡╹)? Sleeping really feels nice for me. It would be great if I could sleep under the blue sky while wrapped in the warm wind~ (●´ω`●) 

This time, I’m going to explain the characteristics that shape our personalities and identities and the factors that differentiate us from others. There are academic terms and expressions that are difficult to understand in English by the presenter, but the pronunciation is easy to understand and the presentation is full of humor, so please try to learn English by watching video below ! ٩( ‘ω’ )و

So, we are going to learn English from Brian Little’s presentation with the title “Who are you, really? The puzzle of personality” !

Furthermore, extroverts prefer to speak in black and white, concrete, and simple words, rather than introverts.
      2. Tendency of introverts : Introverts tend to stay away from stimuli as much as they can. The desire from the inside may slow down the work they are working on, but it’s just an indication of what’s different from the extroverts. Sexual intercourse is less frequent than extroverted people, and when communicating with them, they try not to make eye contact.

The study of individuality and idiosyncratic : Personality Psychology

Presenter Brian Little is a professor of personality psychology. Personality psychology (in this video) is a form of psychology in which psychologists try to analyze how each of us looks like, looks like someone else, and is different from anyone else in a particular way. The study and analysis of personality psychology ranges from neuroscience neurons to narratives.

 

5 traits that make personality 

Differentiating personality using trait psychology, one of the most influential approaches to personality science, basically by applying individuals to five traits, it draw a universal aspect of individual differences. It takes the initial letter and is spell out “OCEAN”.

Open to experience: curiousness (versus conservative thinking)

Conscientiousness : Have awareness of live (versus don’t have)

Extroversion: extroverted (versus introverted)

Agreeable individuals : Positive for life (versus negative)

Neurotic individuals : Nervousness (versus stableness)

All of these characteristics affect our happiness and the flow of our life.

For example, curious and highly motivated people are very good indicators of success, but curious people achieve success by boldness and sometimes strange behavior, while those who are highly motivated can achieve success by observing deadlines and by perseverance and some degree of passion.

 

Difference and tendency between extroversion and introversion

Below is explanations of the differences and tendencies between extroverts and introverts.

 

Tendency of extroverts

Extroverts often seek external stimulation by listening to loud music and attending parties and social events. Also, for extroverts, the desire and urge to drink coffee or sing at karaoke is not a joke and is often really necessary.

There were also clear differences in the frequency of sexual intercourse. Studies show that both men and women engage in sexual intercourse more frequently than internal people (male : 5.5, Female: 7.5)

When communicating with extroverts, they also want to meet many people at short distances, unlike introverts. They also like to stand nearby and communicate, like many eye contacts and want to stare at each other.

Furthermore, extroverts prefer to use concrete and simple black-and-white words. And they attach nickname faster than introverts.

 

Tendency of introverts

Introverted people tend to spend their time in places where there are few external stimuli, such as loud music, parties and social events, and try to stay away from the stimuli if possible. In addition, cravings and impulses in mind, such as wanting to drink coffee or sing at karaoke, may slow down the work for introverts, but it’s just an indication of how different they are from extroverts.

Studies show that both men and women have less frequency of sexual intercourse than extroverted people in a month (male : 3.0, Woman: 3.1). This is about twice as different from extroverts.

In addition, introverts tend not to make eye contact when they interact with people who don’t feel secure, unlike extroverts.

Even more introverts call each other’s name consistently unless the other party agrees. Unlike extroverts, these two types may not mesh with each other because they prefer contextually complex, contingent, weasel-word sentences.

 

What makes us unique?

It’s our activities in life—personal projects that create our individuality and uniqueness. In other words, this is the moment and experience of living now.

Uncharacteristic behavior in such a situation also becomes a “free traits”Free traits are the execution of “scripts” to advance core projects at the core of your life. This project is important.

Ask what the core project of your life is, not what kind type you’re. So the free traits are invoked. For example, presenter Brian Little says his core project is “to do professor.” As a university professor, he loves his students very much and his specialties. He really wants to tell them new information and exciting things, so he act extroverted but intoverted. It’s because of the consideration that students need a little bit of a participation class so that they can overcome the storm of schoolwork at 8:00 a.m.

In other words, Brian Little’s personal project is a professor’s present day, and it’s a script that’s willing to love and share learning with his students and act extroverted but introverted to do so. This is the core of Brian Little’s current life, creating personality and uniqueness.

※You need to be careful when you perform for a long period of time, even if you are not a character.

 

3 natures *You don’t have to read them.

Brian Little explores extroversion in the second half of the presentation. He mentioned “three natures,” and I will explain what meaning is associated with the presentation.

three natures

These three natures mean temperament that affects personality, identity and idiosyncratic. Those three are below.

Biogenic nature (neurophysiology)

Natural genetic elements affect personality and character formation

Sociogenic or second nature, which has to do with the cultural and social aspects of our lives.

Something that is said to have an effect on individuality and character building by being in contact with society and culture

Idiosyncratic that forms individual (he calls “idiogenic” nature.)

What makes us unique and idiosyncratic is our activities in life—personal projects—that is the moment and experience we are living now (see the “What makes us unique” column for more information).


① and ② are concepts related to the difference and tendency between extroversion and introversion, and ③ are the main points of the argument Brian Little wants to convey : What makes us unique?

In the end

Wasn’t it quite interesting?
Our individual personalities have similarities and commonality in general. But by having core projects (plans to play the central part of life), we can be different and unique. This is inevitable!! Because everyone is born, living and educational environment, appearance, and all the events we experience are different. You create your own identity inevitably ( ´ ▽ ` ). We’re all different, and we’re all good!

I think the core project of life (the plan to play the core part of life) is all right as the objects. If you want to become a good parent, become rich, or work hard as a volunteer, you’ll be happy. However, I personally think it would be better if it was something that would benefit and help others out. Because activities that help others come back to you. It means that when the other person is happy, you can be happy also .(Here’s the article showing the grounds for it!)

Everyone, stay healthy today also ٩( ‘ω’ )و

Bye bye (@^^)/~~~
